Allison de Groot
Roots duo Allison de Groot & Tatiana Hargreaves have just released an EP of hot outtakes from their critically acclaimed 2022 album, Hurricane Clarice, on Free Dirt Records. Produced by Phil Cook, the album was recorded as if for a live performance, so some of the duo's favorite tunes didn't make the final set, namely these three!
Traditional music is not static; it shifts with the times, uncovering new meanings in old words, new ways of talking about the communal pathways that led us to where we are today. For master musicians Allison de Groot & Tatiana Hargreaves, traditional stringband music is a way to interpret our uncertain times, to draw artistic inspiration and power from the sources of meaning in their lives.
